Building Blocks Course
Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Building Blocks Course at Casebrook Intermediate. I went along as part of next year’s Junior Hub staffing team.
Building Blocks is all about making sure that children have all of the foundation skills that enable them to be ready to learn, such as Oral language, Listening, Looking, Moving and Print. Without these foundation skills children are unable to access the curriculum and tend to struggle throughout their time at school.
We heard from staff at other schools that are currently using Building Blocks. This was for me a valuable way of learning how it can be incorporated into an, in class activity that is fun for the children, through action stations etc.

It was great to be able to attend this course as a group of staff members that will be working together next year with our very young learners.

  1. Thanks for sharing Brenda. I agree it is so important that we equip our youngest learners with a strong foundation of skills that future learning can be built upon. The feedback from this course sounds really positive. I would like to hear more about how it is implimented.
